    Just Like A New Day!

    The first clean blank page, the crisp unmarred cover...what's not to like! When I was a little girl I think one of my most favorite things about school was new notebooks, new pencils and the smell of new crayons. To this day I love to buy new notebooks, whether it's for making...

    Fresh and Crisp

    Given a stack of new notebooks, I will spend time lining them up, making sure they are straight and even. The pages are crisp, the edges "sharp". The books open and the pages are neatly aligned at every edge. A touch of OCD perhaps?

    My Weakness!

    I absolutely love new notebooks. I spend hours walking around shops just touching them and on occasion, buying them. I currently have around 15-20 where I live, and a lot more at home. They end up being used once before a new favourite is found. Spirals will have pages ripped out...

    I love new notebooks, the clean fresh and crisp pages.  But the problem is I seem to have several at once on the go!  I have a work notebook, a notebook that I keep by my PC just for random lists and notes, a study notebook, a journal (that I don't actually write in...

    I Do

    Opening it up for the first time, and being faced with that first blank page. The potential it has - the ideas it could help to store.  The desire to start writing on it in the neatest of handwriting. The blank untouched pages that lie ahead :)

    I Do

    They smell so good and fresh to open. And when they're all old and dog eared and full of untidy handwriting and doodles, i still love them. Only problem is, i never want to really understand what i've written in them. Sometimes i do, but i wish its more often.

    I'm a compulsive note taker and I think it's great to open a fresh, new notebook.  I love that new paper smell and the crisp clean pages. Give it a while and things are a bit different.  I pretty much wreck my notebooks over time and they end up all creased and sorry...

    Never Enough Notebooks, Really

    From the time I was a kid, I've always loved buying new notebooks. It's like starting over fresh each time I get a new one. Funny how an empty notebook can hold promise in one's eyes. I so look forward to writing in my new notebook, but part of me is very particular and neurotic...

    Love Hate Relationship

    But I also hate them. It feels so wrong to write on a fresh page. Especially those pages that are so pretty and clean and perfect. But once I put pen to paper it gets easier. Then after a few pages I fall in love with my new notebook again, but by then it's not so new. - K

    They smell lovely, and all the new pages to write on! I can write anything in those. In fact, it's been a long time since i've had a notebook. I should go buy one and just write until I can write no more.
